Recycling program helps those with disabilities

UALR, through Procurement Services, has partnered with United Cerebral Palsy of Arkansas to institute a used cartridge recycling program on campus. This program not only supports the university’s sustainability efforts but also provides work opportunities for those with disabilities to proudly contribute to their community.

UCP Enterprises is the entrepreneurial business division of United Cerebral Palsy of Arkansas. United Cerebral Palsy of Arkansas is committed to helping people with disabilities live “A Life Without Limits” and employment is an important part of this goal. United Cerebral Palsy of Arkansas operates three businesses under the UCP Enterprises umbrella: Ultra Cartridge Products, Gone for Good Secure Document Destruction, and CP Buttons. These businesses serve small- and mid-size businesses up to Fortune 500 companies and various state and federal agencies.

Ultra Cartridge Products is the business that operates the used cartridge recycling program. This business provides employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities by collecting used cartridges and then cleaning, re-manufacturing, and reselling them.

Collection boxes for used toner cartridges have been placed in designated areas around campus:

Admin North
Dickinson Hall
Donaghey Student Center
Facilities Management
Fribourgh Hall
Old Student Union B
Ottenheimer Library
Reynolds/College of Business
Speech
Student Services

Ultra Cartridge Products will collect the used cartridges every two weeks. If the collection box is full before the two week collection date, you may request an early pickup by calling the number on the box. Please identify the box by building and floor when you call for early pickup.

If you would like to have a toner collection box in your area, please contact Procurement Services at 501.569.3144 or through the Requests or Submissions portal.
